Announcing the 2021-2022 Fall-Winter Colloquium

We are welcoming the fall-winter term with an excellent list of speakers and events. The events will be held in a hybrid (online + physical) format so that we can continue to reach our friends and colleagues around the world while maintaining a safe environment for in-person socialization.

Our colloquium series usually takes place on Thursdays 3pm (CET) and will be announced a week in advance by email. Subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates and notifications.
